The King of Comedy is another addition to my list of kino cinema I've watched this year. It starts out slow but once the pace starts picking up you're in for a wild ride. Robert De Niro as always plays a great performance, this time as an up-and-coming comedian Rupert Pupkin trying to make it big in showbiz. The film shares a lot of similarities with Taxi Driver and Joker, coincidentally all three starring De Niro. As you might expect, this movie is part of the 'sigma male cinematic universe' along the likes of Drive, American Psycho and Courage the Cowardly Dog.

I wasn't particularly fond of the start of the movie as it jumps a lot in between cuts where Rupert discusses about being on the show with Jerry Langford, hottest comedian in America played by Jerry Lewis. Only later does the film show you that it isn't being completely honest with you, leaving you to have to determine for yourself if what played out actually happened or was it just part of Rupert's fantasies. Halfway through the movie however, as Rupert becomes more deliberate in his means does the film make it clear to you that everything that goes on from that point on is real. Ironic as Rupert's insanity correlates inversely as to how clearly he's thinking and him being set on what he's going to do, with the milder delusions being fake and the dangerous stunts he pulls being real.

Ultimately, while the mischief and hanky-panky he teamed up with a Jerry stan he did was not something that you'd want to replicate in real life, the film does provide a very good message of rejecting the idea of 'being realistic'. If Rupert had waited for Jerry's team to contact him, or did small gigs that offers the unsteady promise of leading him somewhere, the legend of the King would have never been known. I believe that a lot of people living in mediocrity could learn a little something from this movie and try something out of the ordinary to be a step closer to being a legend.

Also, I bet you guys would enjoy this one since the ending could be interpreted as Rupert just having a 109 minute schizo episode.

Man I hate Pinterest,
Me and my homies all hate Pinterest.
(Forces you to register or login with your email account, probably is the inspiration by the aggressive nature of Twitter with it's "login/register" to see a fucking meme)
Man you're missing out, Pinterest is great for finding cool or cute pictures, better than any search engine or Instagram. I use it mostly to look at cute idols.

ATTN: ALL CIA AGENTS

Cease and desist from altering my music playlists immediately! Why do you seek to traumatize me in this way? Is it so important that you prevent my highly lucrative and very patentable inventions from coming to fruition? In July of 1994, then President Bill Clinton ordered you to ensure that my inventions would not disrupt operations in Yugoslavia. Now your corrupt autocratic masters demand you prevent me from saving the people of Ukraine!? Only sick trauma fetishists, such as yourselves, would continue to engage in this scheme. My inventions could quite literally be the most valuable and patentable inventions of all time! I have also noticed your efforts to subvert me by removing all DNS records for Kroger and related stores. Do not assume this will go unpunished! When my incredibly profitable inventions have been completed I will be pursuing legal action against you! Think smarter not harder! You don't want to be on the losing end of the largest civil judgement of all time! Maybe you are brainstorming new ideas to traumatize and psychologically torture me? Give it up while you still can! Unlike you, I am not doing anything to jeopardize the sanctity of international law or violate any intellectual property rights. I will not be silenced or suppressed! No matter how many times you rearrange files on my desktop, I will not stop working for the good of mankind! I will be meeting with investors looking to purchase licenses to my extremely patentable and very profitable inventions soon.

You have been warned.

I mentioned in another thread I enjoy trolling YouTube livestreamers, so here's a video of me doing just that from a long while ago. The whole set up is I went into this guy's livestream and persistently attempted to persuade him to turn on the PBS show Antiques Roadshow by using around 4 different accounts simultaneously.

Dude this is amazing, do you have any more?

Fuck man. I watched it last year. Great, great movie.

Do you think his fame at the end of the movie is real or a fantasy? I lean toward fantasy.

I like to think that it was real, but in actual fact it doesn't matter because like how it was in its older brother Taxi Driver, even if it was real you have a mentally ill man whose unstable mental state and unpredictability would cause his eventual downfall either way.
